Yup, half of Lightlink is down...

When I got a page on my cell phone from my InterMapper server monitor software a couple of hours ago, I groaned, thinking our web server had gone down again. It did so on Saturday afternoon and again on Monday morning, necessitating trips to restart it manually.

Well, as I usually do, I did a quick spot-check of a few surrounding machines to make sure they weren't down also, which would suggest a power outage or network connection problem. It turns out everything down there is offline... including all of the,, and even servers.

I waited a reasonable amount of time before calling Homer, and just got him on the phone. He says their upstream connection is down because the routing tables apparently got removed at the company that provides their connection to the rest of the world. He has no ETA. Sorry for the inconvenience!
